Another Banapis, Another year in Midkemia Online.
Well, Its Banapis time again and wow, this year the Divine have really outdone themselves with the story. Our Banapis fairs are hosted by a quirky little Goblin by the name of Percy, he is usually accompanied by a Dwarven man and an Elven woman and together the three of them travel Midkemia and set up the fair for a few days around Banapis every other in game year.
Unfortunately for Percy, the Elf and the Dwarf have started with some extracurricular activities with each other and as such they have decided to head off and settle down somewhere alone. Percy has been stranded with his wagons, wares and live merchandise in the middle of the Grey towers and whilst trying to transport his stuff the rest of the way he happened to find himself slap bang in the middle of two religious sects trying to claim a section of the Grey towers for themselves.
Not being one to pass up a business opportunity, the Goblin has decided to act the double agent and has each sect selling various wares on his behalf in order to fund the expansion of each sect and line his pockets in the process. As a result Percy has decided to keep the fair open for a whole year while he considers his options for future fairs.
The unique items for this fair are fantastically designed and a joy to own. From one shot lightning makers to thunderous horns to unique furniture and pets as well as mounts and food. I could only afford a couple of trinkets at the start but now I know I have the time, I can hunt for the gold to buy myself a 10 point hart, a unique mount to carry me into battle.
Bobby has been busy hunting up tickets for the lottery mentioned in my last post and unfortunately this was not his week. Still with three lotteries to go, I still have a good chance. Everyone who won a prize is really happy and looking forward to seeing what the next one brings, not to mention the experience and crit bonuses that come with buying tickets.
As for Swordmastery, all the initial bugs have been worked out and the balancing is complete and it must be one of the most lore inspired and fantastically made skillsets I have ever seen in Midkemia Online. The Great Trees are growing and as they do the power of the Swordmasters increase.The coders really need to give themselves a pat on the back for this one and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us next.
